Summary/Abstract: In the beginning of the 20th century the tendencies in architecture changed, creating a need to change the method of education of architects. In Germany, in 1919, the founder of Bauhaus, Walter Gropius, introduced a new way of education. In Russia, in 1930, Yakov Chernikhov developed a new method of education in keeping with the principles of modern architecture, which he published in his book "Fundamentals of Contemporary Architecture". It describes the procedure of "graphic literacy of architects". This paper deals with the definition of didactic components presented in the first chapter of the book. Chernikhov’s method included a gradual increase of the complexity of the elements with which the students practiced until they developed the ability to design by themselves. The paper explores how teachers develop students’ skills of composing, encourage their creative energy, develop their research approach, and stimulate creativity instead of mere copying.
